On one of my regular lunchtime walks along the river, I passed through my usual turning point (Town Bridge) and made my way to the weir. Sitting down to eat my lunch, camera at the ready I spied the usual swans, ducks and Canada geese. It was a pleasant surprize to see a couple of herons fly in.
It was many years ago on this river that I first saw a heron for the first time.
As I sat watching the Canada geese, I became aware that they were watching me as they grazed the sunburnt grass
One in particular followed me to the rubbish bin as I disposed of my sandwich packaging, hissing his disappointment
at not receiving a snack!

Mondays, Tuesdays ………. it doesn’t matter what day of the week it is. I just love to photograph birds.
Sometimes it’s easier to count the family members than others.
Or seeing where they have decided to build a nest this year

I work in a building on the riverbank, and if I glance through one window I get to see……
Waiting to Strike…..
Unfortunately I only had a camera phone to take the pictures. Usually I would only see one or two (not six) by the boathouse on pontoons the other side of the river.
I often get to see a heron waiting patiently ready to pounce for its lunch, when I go for mine.
As well as Swans and the Canada geese…..
Others too……. like to frequent the river
And then Homeward Bound…..
